Monkey Puzzle pedestal bowl

Monkey Puzzle ( Araucaria spp.)  or Chilean Pine .This ancient species appeared in the Jurassic era , the fossilised form of which is the precious stone " Jet" . Much favoured by the Victorians , a lot of these  trees are now reaching the end of their lives and dying ,  thus enabling woodturners  to aquire what would otherwise be an unobtainable  timber , since they are now a protected species, and much sought after.

Distinctive by way of the fact , that is one of the few species where all the branches appear in a perfect circle on the trunk. These give rise to the " eyes " on turned work , as demonstrated here on the rim of the bowl.

23 cm W x 10 cm H.
